Family Property Division and the New Technologies
Updated: Aug 20
Professor Patrick Parkinson AM has recently finalised an article that will be published shortly in Ex Curia, the journal of the Family Law Practitioners' Association of Western Australia.
It reviews a number of new technologies that could help family law practitioners to reduce the time spent in preparing a case for the purposes of negotiation, mediation or litigation. Adoption of such technologies could thereby reduce legal costs for clients.
The article also reviews a new government-funded program, developed under the leadership of the Legal Services Commission of South Australia, to assist people to resolve property disputes using artificial intelligence, without involving lawyers (which is known as Amica).
